Let's Do It With Beer
Beer cocktails may be mixed with white spirits. Pour 10 ml of watermelon syrup, 15 ml of strawberry syrup and lemon juices of few dashes, as per taste, in a mixer. Add 30 ml vodka and ice cubes to the mix. Shake well. Pour the shaken mix to glass through a strainer and add crushed ice. Top it up with beer and stir well.
Blooms in a beautiful colour that, thank god, guys don’t shy away from anymore. The froth head makes it look creamy, though it isn’t.
Despite being associated with women, vodka forms the base of several cocktails that men love. Strongest in the lot. Fruity. This drink is perfect for you if you don’t like your drinks sweet.
Another white spirit plays a cameo in this beer cocktail – gin. Pour 15 ml of kiwi fruit mix, 10 ml of cucumber syrup and juice of freshly squeezed lemon. Add 30 ml gin and ice cubes to the mix. Shake well. Pour the shaken mix to glass through a strainer and add crushed ice. Top it up with beer and stir well.
This is probably the best colour after the beer gold for summers. Resembles dirty cucumber water. It will turn further foggy if kept for a longer time.
The perfect blend of bitter-sweet flavour that we love. The twist of cucumber makes it very refreshing. The taste of the beer is intact despite the gin. Throw in some slices of kiwi and you’ll see a graceful change in the body.
We know what you’re thinking, a name like that doesn’t belong in your glass. The christening is due to the rose syrup that goes in the drink. Other than that it’s all male. Pour 20 ml of rose syrup in a glass. Add 4 lemon wedges to balance the flavour. Fill half the glass with crushed ice and top it with beer. Stir well.
A washed out colour of beer with two prominent parts: light at the top and darker at the bottom in a beautiful gradient.
Refreshing. Not overpoweringly bitter as spirit-based cocktails. Sweetish. A good alternative for those who don’t like the taste of alcohol. Reverse the drink by pouring it in another glass after a few sips to get a more diluted version.
No Indian menu is complete without an Oriental twist. This tequila-based cocktail is made with 15 ml of Yuzu fruit mix, 10 ml of white beach. Blanche and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Add 30 ml tequila to the mix and shake well. Pour the shaken mix to glass through a strainer and add crushed ice. Top it up with beer and stir well.
Exactly like fresh forest honey (not the packaged one you see in the market). Very smoky. Looks like a golden ale.
Very fruity in flavour. It leaves a bitter taste in your mouth that’s also tangy. If you want to fly higher quickly without the taste of alcohol to hit your pallet, this is just the drink for you.
THE GUY IN YELLOW BOOTS
The drink makes for a cool summer that will also shine out in winters, thanks to its spicy quality due to gingerbread. Pour 20 ml of gingerbread syrup to a glass. Add crushed ice to keep the drink chilled for longer. Top it with beer. Stir well.
Darker than the rest so far. A smooth honey-like appearance that almost gives away the sweetness in taste.
Reminds you of spices, especially ginger and cinnamon. Not floral in taste, for obvious reasons but sweet. Guys are bound to like it. Just try not to cave in and go for stronger alcohol in the closet.
